Redskins activate S DeAngelo Hall from PUP list
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have activated DeAngelo Hall off the physically unable to perform list, and the veteran defensive back could make his season debut Sunday at the Seattle Seahawks.
The Redskins announced the move late Friday night, waiving offensive tackle Orlando Franklin to make room on the 53-man roster. Coach Jay Gruden predicted Hall would be activated somehow because Washington only had three other safeties following a season-ending injury to Stefan McClure.
Hall, 33, hasn’t played since Week 3 of the 2016 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee. He was placed on the PUP list prior to training camp and served as an unofficial assistant secondary coach while on the sideline.
Earlier this week, Hall said he was ready and “just waiting for the call.”
